Making High-Speed Rail Work in the Northeast

penn_hsr_cover250.jpgWondering what a feasible high-speed rail plan for the Northeast looks like? A proposal drafted by University of Pennsylvania's School of Design would connect Washington, D.C., and New York in 90 minutes and New York and Boston in 115 minutes, partly by traveling along a new rail corridor through Long Island and under the Long Island Sound. RPA's Petra Todorovich describes the proposal in a talk at the U.S. High Speed Rail Association conference in New York.
